I initially came to this board as poly and then recently declared myself monogamous. That decision was well received here but I have felt what you speak of in groups irl. I'd been involved in the kink community and very few people were mono and it was/is often looked down upon. I'd felt a lot of pressure to be poly in that community and finally decided that I had to decide for myself. It is frustrating when people act like they're more enlightened or superior because they're poly. I know, however, having been on both sides that many poly people are made to feel like they're less than by the society at large. So it goes both ways. I hope in the future this problem dies down and acceptance on all sides becomes the norm.
